I am an absolute beginner when it comes to music, which is a lot of work and patience for my husband. Other stuff I do includes nursing by trade and we operated a mini horse farm with a free community outreach. We raise mini horses, honey bees, chickens, dogs and cats. When I play, my 3 Great Pyrenees howl and my beloved mutt, Emily, gets up and begs to go outside! 🤣 Anyways, I need a teacher in my area. I’m open to recommendations and referrals.

I always loved that ballad John Barleycorn as well, having been blown away by it as a teen while listening to Blind Faith/Traffic around 1970.
